Navani Knows Ox 2010

Happy Tuesday! Today is the first day back after Memorial Day, it’s 90 degrees and summer seems to finally be here in NYC. With that comes not only a slew of blockbuster movies hitting the theaters, but also a slew of new music being dropped. Today the super anticipated 3rd solo album from the big homie Vast Aire Drops entitled Ox 2010: A Street Odyssey.

I am not only excited to promote this album because Vast is my friend  (not like facebook friend , I mean we kinda grew up together and actually speak in real life, like normal people) but because it is a good album! I am happy to come across an album with so much creativity.  It boasts his signature style – unpredictable beats grounded in boom bap but with a twist of science fiction in the backdrop. If nothing else it is entertaining. And with guests like Raekwon and Cappadonna, what more can you ask for?

Even still, I tried my best to be totally objective when reviewing the album for Brooklyn Bodega. Check out what I said here.

And shout out to my homie Orign of Futprnts Workshop from Orlando who did the artwork for the album cover. Talk about six degrees of separation for real! The world is really small. He is an awesome artist/animator/producer who has done work for the likes of Prince Po, Vast Aire and more. Check out more of his work here.

And go cop Ox 2010, it dropped today!
